Handel Choir
Of Baltimore

Handel Choir of Baltimore is a critically acclaimed choral ensemble that presents yearly performances of Handel’s Messiah with the Handel Period Instrument Orchestra, as well as other major choral and choral-orchestral works. Our 88th season showcases a wide range of music and performances throughout the Baltimore Metropolitan Area.

BIG, BOLD, & BRASSY!

2022 ~ 2023

Celebrating our 88th year, Handel Choir will dazzle Baltimore with high-spirited dynamic sounds from the Baroque to the modern day. Purchase a season subscription and save up to 20% off of individual tickets.

  • Messiah
    Handel Choir’s highly celebrated performance is also Baltimore’s only period instrument Messiah – and now with a new twist! Hear excerpts from Handel’s concerti composed specifically as entr’acte music for his grand oratorios.
  • Visions, Dreams, & Flying Machines
    Gaze upon the origins of our universe, marvel at Da Vinci’s dreams of flight, and celebrate the wonders of modern communication – all via an immersive multimedia choral experience. Handel Choir’s performance combines light art, live electronics, Baroque treasures, a favorite party piece of The King’s Singers, and a rediscovered work by Maryland musical prodigy Mark Fax.
  • Metalworks!
    Inspired by our “Music for a Great Space” concert tradition, Handel Choir is teaming with the city’s finest brass players for an evening of uncommon extravagance and grandeur. Bask in the splendor of Gabrieli and Bach, revel in the joy of Rutter and Hailstork, and be the first to hear Maestro Bartoldus’s new arrangement of Verdi’s Te Deum, the romantic master’s Opus Ultimum.
